Library Policies

Camp Verde Community Library Policies & Practices


The purpose of the Camp Verde Community Library (LIBRARY) is to provide library services that satisfy the diverse needs of the citizens of Camp Verde and surrounding communities. It is vitally important that citizens have convenient and free access to the expanding world of ideas, information and creative experiences.

The long-term goal of the LIBRARY is the maximum use of its resources by the greatest number of people. The LIBRARY’S objectives are to select, acquire, organize and preserve materials and resources that will aid individuals in the pursuit of information, education, and cultural/recreational interests.

The LIBRARY serves as a community resource and referral center by providing free access to comprehensive and quality print, media and online informational materials and resources.

In addition to meeting the needs of regular patrons, the LIBRARY employs methods of service that may attract members of the community who have not traditionally been library users.

The policies stated herein will serve as guidelines for the day-to-day operation and function of the LIBRARY. All Library staff and volunteers shall be informed of these policies. Library staff will render services relevant to these expressed objectives.


The LIBRARY policies herein may be revised, as circumstances require, by the Library Director and enforced when adopted by the Town Council. View the Camp Verde Community Library Policies & Practices.
